# 35  Power And The Passion - Midnight Oil  (this is also # 81  :D)

# 40 I know, but I refuse to acknowledge the validity of the more recent artist as a bonafide performer (due to fabrication that is Australian Idol) so I pass on that one  :P :P :P

#40 is What About Me by Moving Pictures.  I also know that Shannon Noll won Australian Idol with it.  I used to belong to a 1927 messageboard and they all were raving about Noll's version when he won ;D

Congratulations to all so far,most are correct and the ones who are correct with the songs they picked are in red next to each song :)


To Fussbudget - no.22 is the right band but wrong title.

Windbreaker - 36 is wrong, but to be fair this is one of the harder ones in the quiz so i am not surprised you got that wrong. This band were a one album wonder from the early nineties.
I actually used to work with the lead singers mum, who's surname was the name of the band.
